Defenseman Guerra, 24, is currently playing for the ZSC Lions and has signed a contract for the 2018-2019 season. He already spent his junior years in Ambrì before making his NLA-debut with HC Davos during the 2009-2010 season. Jannik Fischer, 27, agreed to a three-year deal. Currently in his eighth season with Lausanne HC, the defender will stay with the Biancoblu until 2021.

Another defenseman has extended his contract. Igor Jelovac is going to stay in the Valascia until 2020. He joined the team at the start of last season.
